Who are we?

The KCCI is an independent not-for-profit group that leads the Kingaroy Business community in championing economic prosperity for large and small business who make Kingaroy the commercial centre of the South Burnett.

The KCCI spearheads the maintenance of a strong local economy by improving the business climate and expanding the business base through advocacy to local, state, and federal representatives and decisionmakers.

As a member-focused chamber, the KCCI operates a business services HUB, prioritises mental wellbeing through its SMILE program, and promotes connection with community through leadership.

The KCCI creates valuable programs and events that boost members’ networks, business growth and profitability. We forge unique and creative partnerships to create more opportunities and jobs, and to support individual members on a variety of issues.
The chamber focuses on three pillars, our members, development and business unity/identity. The KCCI takes the Kingaroy community forward for the benefit of all.

Damo Martoo

President (Company - Martoo Review)

Meet Damien (Damo) Martoo, who was invited to join the Chamber Executive in 2018 and then elected as President. The new leadership role fell just as the pandemic hit and the KCCI were thrust into stakeholder engagement to represent businesses who were experiencing a multitude of challenges from Public Health directions. There was a lot of information to be circulated up and down the stakeholder chain. During this time, is when Damo says this time emphasized the importance of the chamber network and the need for a strong presence on behalf of its members. At this point in time, Damo was progressing his own social media promotions and event hosting/coverage platform which allowed him to spend a lot of time listening to other's needs. Since then, Damo's situation has taken a massive direction change in the past couple years, but one thing has not changed. Damo says that he will continue to do everything he possibly can so that the town that raised and supported him and his family is the best it can possibly be for the future generations.

Executive Member (Company - Musch12 pty ltd)

David is a seasoned professional in interstate sales and business development, currently running his own business that serves local companies like the Crumpton Group.
Born and raised in Kingaroy, David is very proud to call himself a “Local”. From a young age he always had an interest in motor vehicles and motor sport. This led him to a career in the motor industry. David started as an apprentice motor mechanic and finished his motor industry career as an equity owner and Dealer Principal of a Motor Vehicle Dealership in 2023, a 35 year service in the industry.
In early 2023 David and his wife Susan purchased a caravan and travelled for 6 months throughout the east coast of Australia. As much as they thoroughly enjoyed this experience, they both were not ready for this lifestyle and decided to challenge themselves with a completely different industry. This led to an opportunity within the Crumpton organisation. We look forward to where the next 10 years will take us.
David has been a member of the Chamber of Commerce for 3 years, enjoying that the Chamber gives him the ability to network with a group of similarly minded people that wish to grow and develop their business communities.
